Dr. Bateson’s Weather Corner: Torrential Rains Shatter Previous February Record

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Dr. Bateson, Susanville’s resident meteorological expert, reports that we have shattered yet another precipitation record this month.

“I just measured another 2.25 inches of water from snow and rain over the past 24-hours and that brings us to 12.85 inches of rain for February,” explains Bateson. That number eclipses the old February record of 11.9 inches set in 1986.

“We have now broken October, January and February’s records this year,” Bateson said. “That brings us to 40.05 inches for the year to date since July first and is 186% of average for the whole year.”

According to Bateson another 3.8 inches between now and the end of June is all that stands in the way of us breaking the all time record for the wettest year dating back before 1890.

Why We Need Reader Support


Our independent, local coverage takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. It is also not particularly lucrative. Our primary revenue source, banner advertising on SusanvilleStuff, is simply not enough by itself, and we increasingly need to rely on reader support to pay the bills.
